If there's oil film coating the inside put it upside down in a large tray and pour as much mineral spirits in you can and slosh it around back and forth through the core untill all the oil disolves and mixes with the spirits. Pour it out and let it air dry.

If it isn't real dirty you can save slightly used mineral spirits for the first step in cleaning more parts in the future.

To speed up drying the inside of the core put a shop vac exit side hose into one of the connections and let it blow air through the core for around 5-10 minues or until it's dry.
Mineral spirits won't hurt the aluminum.
